Capt. De Klerk is leaving by steamer for Surabaya. He is extremely depressed about Holland. He received 2 mos. wages (500 guilders) and 1st class fare back. Anne consulted me as to whether Ted is capable of handling the boat alone. She asked me to be of every possible help on navigation.
We cannot leave before tomorrow because a generator has not arrived from Surabaya.
I found that we had not been ordered to sail immediately.
Four guns with ammunition, which had been taken off the ship were returned. The two guards left. They were on 24 hour duty and did not change their clothes for about 4 days.
Hugo called me at about 10 AM and said he thought that the anchor was dragging and that Ted was ashore. I took some bearings and found that we were getting uncomfortably near to a KPM steamer. Just after starting the engines Kilkenney returned and took charge.
Rain continued, the heaviest downpour yet.
Anne woke me up from a sound sleep to know if I wanted to go to the leper colony. I did not go and she went with Mrs. Hamel.
Fenton brought back the enlargements which were good but one negative badly damaged.
